Travel insurance: Couples travel insurance

If you are going on holiday with your partner you can buy one policy to cover both of you. Some insurers offer a discount when buying a joint policy. Below, we have provided the individual premium so you're able to see where an insurer applies a discount.

Which? Best Rate travel insurance policies provide the cheapest cover meeting our stringent criteria. Our policies include at least £2 million of medical cover for Europe and £5 million worldwide, £1,500 of cover for baggage and personal belongings and £3,000 for cancellation or curtailment.

We have also analysed the 22 most important elements of your travel insurance policy to see which providers offer the best all-round cover including missed departures, delays, holiday and airline failure, terrorism cover and volcanic ash. Insurers with a policy score of less than 65% are not include. 

It is worth noting that policy details can change depending on whether you buy direct or via a comparison site. Remember, however, to check the terms of the policy closely. Some insurers charge individual excesses, so a claim affecting you and your partner could mean a double deduction.
